Pisces is a Mutable Sign
The Mutable Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. There is one Mutable Sign for each of the Elements -- Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Gemini is Mutable Air, Virgo is Mutable Earth, Sagittarius is Mutable Fire, and Pisces is Mutable Water. There are two masculine mutable signs and two feminine mutable signs.
These form two pairs of oppositions in the Zodiac (Gemini and Sagittarius oppose one another; Virgo and Pisces oppose one another.) ... and each element in these oppositions squares the elements of the other. These four signs together form the pattern of the Mutable Grand Cross in which each element has an agenda, a perspective on life and a set of values that antagonizes the other three.
Mutable signs are flexible
Mutable signs adjust, adapt, compromise, and negotiate. Their preferred tactics focus on working around obstacles and finding ways to "get along with" that which troubles them. Mutable signs move effortlessly with the tide, letting themselves be swept along in the stream of life's storms, confident of their resilience/
Pisces is the most mutable of all
Pisces is designated the Mutable Water sign. At heart, this gentle sign is the most pliant, permeable, and fragile member of the Zodiac ... completely in keeping with the serene stillness of a quiet standing pond ... or the foggy swirls of mist that shift only in response to outside movement.
